Day 40: Once and for All

The cross is empty

The tomb is empty

"He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, "saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.'" Luke 24:6-8

He has risen

In my heart

As we have been fasting for the last 40 days~

Putting off what weighs us down,

those stubborn pounds

that steal the abundant life that Jesus has come to give,

and by

Putting on more of Jesus

I will never be the same

You will never be the same

Losing more


Gaining more of Him

The weight is gone

The weight of sin that was nailed on

His delicate body~

It is finished.

The 40th pound

The heaviest weight

Once and for All



came down from His heavenly home

to Be born in a manger

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called

*Wonderful Counselor,*Mighty God, *Everlasting Father,

*Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

To be

laid on a cross

To be

laid in the tomb

To Rise


this Easter morning

How many kings would do that?

Only One

The Risen One

And Jesus did it

Once and for All


Forgive you

“Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:17

Once and for All

He came to

Set you free

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36

Once and for All

He came because He loves you

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.John3:16

Once and for All

He was crucified

Once and for All

He was buried

Once and for All

He Rose from the tomb

Once and for All


if He did it

Once and for All...

Have you accepted His forgiveness?

Once and for All

Have you been set free?

Once and for All

Have you accepted His Love?

Once and for All

On this 40th Day

look up to the

One and Only King

who took a walk from the

Cradle to the Cross

so that you can

Rise Above

Whatever weighs you down

because the

wait is over

the time is now.

This is just the beginning


we have so much to gain~

but not the weight we lost over these past 40 days.

Let's get ready as we continue our Journey tomorrow

walking with the

One and Only

beyond the 40th Day.

"...we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ

Once For All."

Hebrews 10:10
